  • 1 cup rolled oats not instant type
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 125 grams butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  1. Preheat oven 170C/325F. Line two large baking trays with non stick paper.
  2. In a pan melt butter and golden syrup. 
  3. Stir to combine. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, coconut, brown sugar and ground ginger. 
  4. Mix the bicarb with 2 tablespoons of boiling water and then pour into the butter mixture stirring well. It should foam. Pour the foaming butter into the oats/flour mixture, mix well. 
  5. Roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls, place on lined baking trays and press down with a fork.
  6.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Watch them, they burn easily so if your oven runs hot, reduce the temp a little and bake for longer for that crispy biscuit. 
  7. Cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container.
